 Looking for something THEATRICALLY AMAZING to be involved in this summer (July 19-July 23)?

 Look no further! The YOUNG AMERICANS are coming back to Muskegon again this summer for a week long day camp involving music, dance and theater!

 This summer camp is open to ANY STUDENT (not just Mona Shores) that will be entering the 3rd grade next fall through college age.

I am confident that if you asked anyone who has participated in the past couple years, they would tell you they had the time of their lives. The week will culminate in two outstanding performances.

You will be stunned at how much your child learns in one week!

What can participants expect?

Our cast of 30+ Young Americans, ages 18-24, will be the instructors for every camp. Our instructors have experience teaching kids and adults in many languages to students all around the world.  The camps are an awesome opportunity for students to grow as people and performers. Students of all experience levels are encouraged to join.

 Throughout the week, campers will spend time learning an hour show geared for their respective age group. We generally break kids up into elementary, middle, and high school groups. They will also be taking fun and interactive classes in singing, dancing, and improv acting.

 On the fourth day of camp, we bring in an industry professional from our Alumni group who teach master classes that share the skills and experiences they have learned in their respective professions. The master teachers have had and still have careers as Broadway performers, major TV network hosts, casting directors, and many more related professions.

 The camp offers a unique experience to gain self-confidence, make new friends, learn an incredible 1-hour variety show, and take workshops in singing, dancing, and acting that you don’t want to miss out on!

REMINDER! YOUNG AMERICANS (3rd ANNUAL) SUMMER MUSIC CAMP AT MONA SHORES HIGH SCHOOL

 Looking for something THEATRICALLY AMAZING to be involved in this summer (July 19-July 23)?

 Look no further! The YOUNG AMERICANS are coming back to Muskegon again this summer for a week long day camp involving music, dance and theater!

 This summer camp is open to ANY STUDENT (not just Mona Shores) that will be entering the 3rd grade next fall through college age.

I am confident that if you asked anyone who has participated in the past couple years, they would tell you they had the time of their lives. The week will culminate in two outstanding performances.

You will be stunned at how much your child learns in one week!

MORE INFO AND Register HERE! 

Further, if you really want to have an unforgettable, over the top experience, sign up also to HOMESTAY a pair of Young Americans (or more)!

Sign up to Homestay Here: YES! I can Homestay Young Americans!

To register for the camp and/or to homestay, just click on the Registration Information below. There is a ton more information below as well so if you are interested in learning more, check it out!

REGISTER AND CAMP BROCHURE HERE • YA Summer Camp Brochure • Register HERE! 

What can participants expect?

Our cast of 30+ Young Americans, ages 18-24, will be the instructors for every camp. Our instructors have experience teaching kids and adults in many languages to students all around the world.  The camps are an awesome opportunity for students to grow as people and performers. Students of all experience levels are encouraged to join.

 Throughout the week, campers will spend time learning an hour show geared for their respective age group. We generally break kids up into elementary, middle, and high school groups. They will also be taking fun and interactive classes in singing, dancing, and improv acting.

 On the fourth day of camp, we bring in an industry professional from our Alumni group who teach master classes that share the skills and experiences they have learned in their respective professions. The master teachers have had and still have careers as Broadway performers, major TV network hosts, casting directors, and many more related professions.

 The camp offers a unique experience to gain self-confidence, make new friends, learn an incredible 1-hour variety show, and take workshops in singing, dancing, and acting that you don’t want to miss out on!

 At www.youngamericans.org/summercamps you can see videos, FAQ’s, cast information and Register HERE! .

Students of all experience levels are encouraged to join.

 Throughout the week, campers will spend time learning an hour show geared for their respective age group. We generally break kids up into elementary, middle, and high school groups. They will also be taking fun and interactive classes in singing, dancing, and improv acting.

 On the fourth day of camp, we bring in an industry professional from our Alumni group who teach master classes that share the skills and experiences they have learned in their respective professions. The master teachers have had and still have careers as Broadway performers, major TV network hosts, casting directors, and many more related professions.

 The camp offers a unique experience to gain self-confidence, make new friends, learn an incredible 1-hour variety show, and take workshops in singing, dancing, and acting that you don’t want to miss out on!

 At www.youngamericans.org/summercamps you can see videos, FAQ’s, cast information and Register HERE! .

If you still have questions, feel free to send us an email at summercamp@youngamericans.org.
